6:07 am
that she didn't need the s in her plaque. >> i have never seen a project delivered without, you know, issues that need to be corrected. >> as soon as we knew there was anything less than perfection on the plaques we called the manufacturer and they said absolutely we'll fix it no problem. >> reporter: 100% of the cost for the plaques was raised. the money was raised privately. much like a headline like dewey defeats truman is big bucks, when the corrected plaque also arrive these will be removed and auctioned off for the honor walk and the transgender law center. a minor bump in the road to cementing castro street history. >> just to know that the people who now walk down castro street can walk literally in the path of those who walked before us. >> reporter: in san francisco, andria borba, kpix 5. >> if all goes as planned, the walk will eventually extend from the harvey milk school to the lgbt center.

average...he'll tell you heo doogie howser. so ho he is only 15 and already a junior at uc-berkeley at cal. he has average grades. how did he skip ahead? well, he was homeschooled and at age 11 his mother signed him up for community college classes ones that didn't have age requirements. pretty soon he had enough credits to transfer to cal as a junior. >> wait a minute, you totally cheated the system, what would you say to them if you run into those people? >> i didn't cheat it. hacked is the word that my mom likes to use when i was little. it's not cheating the system. but it's -- it's looping the system in a way like you avoid
